The phone has more than a passing resemblance to Oppo’s Find X3 Pro, which probably isn’t a bad thing.
Infinix has launched its first premium 5G phone, powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 900 SoC. It may look a bit like Oppo’s 2021 flagship phone (with there even being a vegan leather clad variant), but this will be very much more affordable – despite having an impressive specification for a more mid-range market segment.
The Zero 5G has a 6.78-inch Full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate, a 48-megapixel primary camera (with 30x ultra-zoom), 13-megapixel portrait camera (equivalent to 50mm), and a 2-megapixel virtual camera. On the front is a punch-hole selfie camera with 16-megapixel resolution.
The 5G handset also comes with Wi-Fi 6 connectivity (1200Mbps), as well as a 5,000mAh battery with 33W wired-charging. To further save power consumption, the phone can automatically switch between 4G and 5G as required for normal or heavy data needs.
The phone also has other cool tech features like UFS 3.1 storage, LPDDR5 RAM (with up to 3GB of storage space being usable for extended RAM), XArena game boost mode, and intelligent thermal management with an integrated heat pipe.
Early benchmarks on AnTuTu reveal a score of 486,136 points.
Pricing and availability will be announced later. At launch, the Zero 5G will be available in three colours; Cosmic Black, Skylight Orange, and Horizon Blue.
